Abstract

A Virginia bunch large seeded groundnut variety GG HPS-2 was developed from the cross JVB HPS 2 and GG 20. This entry was under testing from 2013 to 2017 during kharif season in different locations in Gujarat. It has recorded a higher mean pod yield of 2835 kg/ha as compared to the checks viz., GJG HPS 1 (2505 kg/ha) and ICGV 86564 (2478 kg/ha). Mean kernel yield of GG HPS 2 was 1945 kg/ha as against the checks GJG HPS 1 (1724 kg/ha) and ICGV 86564 (1408 kg/ha). GG HPS 2 recorded a mean 100-kernel weight of 66.71 g, 100- pod weight of 184.38 g, shelling out-turn of 68.61% and oil content of 48.82%. The reaction against tikka and rust was resistant, whereas for stem rot and collar rot this variety was comparable to the check varieties. Damage due to leaf defoliators and thrips under field condition in this variety was comparable with those of check varieties. Based on the superior performance, GG HPS 2 has been released for general cultivation in the kharif rainfed semi-spreading groundnut growing areas of the Gujarat State.
